The calculators use the rule that multiplication is calculated before addition. Then the store manager wrote these directions. 90 = (in pounds) (in pounds) (in pounds) 26. If the clerks punch in a calculation using these directions, will they find the correct total for the bill? Section E: Order of Operations 41 E Order of Operations What Comes First? Arithmetic trees are useful because they resolve any question about the order of the calculation. The problem is that they require a lot of room on your paper.

Be sure to use the small-coins-and-bills-first method. Then write another arrow string that has only one arrow to show the total change. a. 59 purchase. b. 26 purchase. c. 64 purchase. 46 Expressions and Formulas 2.
